 Non-competitive Team Competition

We are offering our version of Team Competition due to the popularity from last year.

Many runners form friendships and become part of a group.  Some runners run for a competitive corporate or running club team, and others run with a social group consisting of friends and family from work out at the gym.  We are encouraging groups to join us under a group or team name.  There is no timed group competition, but there is a group of team “participants” competition with a prize of $150.00 for the team or group with the most members.    

This is not an award for the fastest team.  This gives running club teams, corporate teams and teams consisting of friends and acquaintances an equal chance to win.  All they need to do is get people to join or create a team and sign up as team member.  

You can sign up while registering but if you previously registered without declaring a team affiliation you can be added to a team by logging in to and following the instructions below:  

·         Click the "profile" icon (little gray character) and see your name.  

·         Click the rectangular "Upcoming Events" button and select "Hollis Fast 5K".  

·         Look to the right side of the page and see the blue colored "Manage Registration" and click on it.  

·         Next, click on the "Group/Team" header at the top of the page. 

·         Click on the rectangular button titled "Current Group/Team".  A dropdown menu will list the teams who have already registered.  

·         Click on your team.  

·         If your team is not listed, click on the "Create New Group/Team" rectangular button and type in a team name.  

·         You are now officially a member of a team.

·         If you can't figure this out, send us an email message at   We will contact you.  

Note:  Teams or Clubs must be declared during the registration period prior to race day.
